Get Into Platinum
Platinum is a decor power-player. Our antique platinum, which has subtle sparkle and shine thanks to its silver leaf and frost finish, works well in both modern and classic design schemes.
1. Green Centerpieces
The subtle glimmer of antique platinum is the perfect frame for an all-green floral arrangement. In the arrangement below, a grouping of soft, textured green leaves in a platinum bowl makes a statement of refined elegance that’s a great option for your Thanksgiving table.
2. Go Glam
Platinum doesn’t always have to be subdued, however. Go glam at a winter wedding and fill platinum vases with pink Phalaenopsis orchids and anemones. Scatter platinum votives and tea light holders with white tea lights inside on the table to cast a subtle glow around the setting.
3. Brighten Up
It may get darker earlier, but your arrangements don’t have to. Keep things bright and airy by arranging hydrangeas, cosmos, thistle, and dahlias in a platinum vase.
4. Ring in the New Year
Create a white and platinum color scheme to ring in the New Year with style by grouping white flowers in antique platinum vases and votive holders. Place three or five containers together for the most impact, with singular arrangements of white astilbe, roses, andromedas, and hellebores. Arrange them in a cluster behind the bar for a light and airy feel as heady as a glass of New Year’s champagne.
5. A Celebration of Color
Corral deep hued flowers in pink, astilbe, and red and black dahlias in a platinum pedestal bowl for a fall or Thanksgiving centerpiece. These cone shaped arrangements are sitting pretty on cocktail tables in brass edged mirror trays. Surround each arrangement with silver mercury glass votives for a soft, romantic glow.
